The world's longest running motoring event, the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run takes place on the first Sunday of every November. It commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14 November 1896, which celebrated the passing into law of the Locomotives on the Highway Act, raising the speed limit for 'light locomotives' from 4 mph to 14 mph and abolishing the requirement to be preceded by a man on foot.
The Run attracts entrants from all over the world. In the 1996 Centenary Run some 680 cars and drivers took part with over 100 of the participants having shipped their cars from across the globe. To owners of veteran cars worldwide, it represents a high point of the season, and a rare opportunity to show their extraordinary cars to a wider audience. EFG International is proud to be a partner of this extraordinary event.
